  1. I have the ultimate respect for Sorkin. However, the casting is horrible, this does not look or even sound like Jobs to me. No further comment because I HAVEN’T ACTUALLY SEEN THE DAMN MOVIE YET!!!

  2. It’s disappointing to hear the usual ignorant mythology being repeated in this ignorant script. *sigh*

    Exm: “The user interface is stolen…” NO. Go read a book about Apple history. Wikipedia managed to correctly summarize the history:

    In return for the right to buy US$1,000,000 of pre-IPO stock, Xerox granted Apple Computer three days access to the PARC facilities. After visiting PARC, they came away with new ideas that would complete the foundation for Apple Computer’s first GUI computer, the Apple Lisa.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Apple_Inc.

    Then Apple added their own GUI innovations and design to both the Lisa and obviously Mac OS.

    But no doubt we’ll be hearing the ignorant mythology for all eternity. So much for the accuracy of ‘history’ among the masses.

  3. No one notices it’s released on what would’ve been John Lennon’s 75th birthday.. (John Lennon was the leader of a band from the 1960’s called ‘The Beatles’, Jobs cited them many times as a source of inspiration….hey, I don’t know, maybe some of you never heard of the Beatles… I have run across such people, y’know.)
    Don’t feel so bad if it misrepresents big Steve. The impression that most people have of the Confederate south comes not from history but from “Gone With The Wind”. Maybe…maybe this movie will have a scene where Steve comes back to Apple that is shot very much like the scene where Scarlett returns to Tara.
    Gawd, that would be funny.

    1. Interesting that you bring that up. Lennon also had many movies made about him, all discarded as sacrilege, pablum, and bad casting just as we are hearing about the movies based on Jobs. A mere trailer is enough fodder to induce foaming amongst those of us who conceptualised him differently. The same may be said of books written about both men. Truth is never presented. It must be teased out of the cracks in the mirror held before us.

  4. There will never be a perfect movie about the legend. Yes, Pirates of Silicon Valley was entertaining, but it was just that, nice to see. What, in my opinion will work, is if a mini-series, of sorts, gets created. For instance, like many have been in HBO or Netflix. His story needs to be told in episodes, not a two-hour movie. He has so many life events that truly need to be told and acted out so carefully. I would not mind this approach at all. It is crying out for this in so many ways. I am just surprised nobody with the creative know-how has started such a project.
